Porcelain Veneers, like any cosmetic treatments, has advantages and disadvantages. Let’s first proceed to its advantages.
Pros of Porcelain Veneers

• Can improve the impression of the teeth
Porcelain veneers can help you achieve a beautiful smile because they hide the imperfections of your teeth. These are made of semi-translucent ceramic, so it will look like a real tooth.
• Stain resistant

• Fast results
Porcelain veneers won’t take long to see the positive results, unlike other treatments. Placement of veneers usually requires at least two visits to the dentist.
• Have stronger teeth
Porcelain is one of the strongest dental materials out there when it comes to improving your teeth’s appearance. They are designed to withstand harsh temperature so that you don’t have to worry about eating hot and cold food.
Cons of Porcelain Veneers
Yes, it is true that when you take care of them, they can last long, but if you eat something hard or grind them together, there is a small chance the veneer can crack.
• May have increased your tooth sensitivity
One of the downsides of porcelain veneers is that it can affect your teeth’s enamel. In some cases, parts of your enamel have to be removed for the veneer to fit on the tooth perfectly.
While veneers are considered an excellent way to enhance your teeth’s appearance, they also have their own fair share of disadvantages. For most patients, the immediate and long-lasting results far outweigh the cons!
